it was amazing

Great pictures of the elements, brief description of the importance of each element, plus a bit of scientific information for the geek. If you go the the website at, you can order customized posters. For example, the poster of my name has carbon (C), iodine (I), neodymium (Nd), and yttrium (y). Carbon is represented by diamond and the iodine was heated on a white plate and has a nice purple fume. It is a very cool poster. It hangs in my office at work, where most of my coworkers are scientists and engineers. Several of them looked at the poster many times before they realized it spelled my name.
